The combination of green, black and white tea in this blend has kept me from trying it until now. It’s one of my last few Della Terra samples, though, and it’s been hanging around long enough. For my first cup, I treated it like I would a white/green, so 2.5 minutes in water cooled to around 180 degrees. The resulting liquor is a light golden brown, and smells deliciously coconutty!

To taste, this one more than lives up to its name. It’s creamy, for sure, absolutely coconutty, absolutely, and rounded off with the thick butteriness of white chocolate. None of the base teas seem particularly prominent, largely because the flavouring is so strong they don’t really have a chance. It’s very lightly malty, but that’s all I can really detect. Possibly I could have left the water a little hotter, so I’ll probably give that a try next time.

This is undoubtedly a VERY sweet tea, and I like sweet things so that’s not something I’d usually remark on too much. It’s on the borderline between sweet and cloying, though, even for me. In small doses, and as a dessert replacement, that’s fine. I probably couldn’t drink cup after cup of this one, though, however dreamy it tastes. An occasional sweet treat.

Hi :) I’m Sarah, and I live in Norfolk in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I’ve been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is now to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they’re the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer — their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I’m still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don’t think they’ll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don’t hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I’m also beginning to explore pu’erh, both ripened and raw. That’s my latest challenge!

I’m still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea. Long may the journey continue!

My rating system:

91-100: The Holy Grail. Flawless teas I will never forget.

81-90: Outstanding. Pretty much perfection, and happiness in a cup.

71-80: Amazing. A tea to savour, and one I’ll keep coming back to.

61-70: Very good. The majority of things are as they should be. A pleasing cup.

51-60: Good. Not outstanding, but has merit.

41-50: Average. It’s not horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. There’s probably still something about it I’m not keen on.

31-40: Almost enjoyable, but something about it is not for me.

11-30: Pretty bad. It probably makes me screw my face up when I take a sip, but it’s not completely undrinkable.

0-10: Ugh. No. Never again. To me, undrinkable.
